Welcome to another episode of Slam Dunk Thursday, sports fans. It’s time to take a look at the window of opportunities for sports bets this week and there is a lot going on. Besides the Women’s World Cup Finals and UFC 292, the big European football leagues started last week so there’s a ton of action on the grass to enjoy.
We also have Djokovic and Alcaraz in the Cincinnati ATP tennis tournament to look forward to.
1) Women’s World Cup Final (August 19th – 20th)
We’ve reached the final weekend of the Women’s World Cup and it’s been a successful event so far. Only the final and the battle for the bronze medal remains and I’m expecting a fierce battle in both games.
Spain takes on England in the final on Sunday while the host nation, Australia, will face Sweden on Saturday.
2) UFC 292 – TD Garden, Boston (August 19th)
We have a massive UFC card this weekend with Aljamain Sterling vs Sean O’Malley as the main attraction. That’s right, Sugar Sean will finally get his shot at the belt but there’s not a chance that Sterling will give it up voluntarily. Quite the opposite, as he is looking to cement his position as the best BantamWeight fighter of all times.
3) Premier League Football
The most popular football league in the world kicked off a new season last week. For those of you who are wondering if Haaland will be able to repeat his sensational scoring from last year, I can tell you that he scored 2 goals in the first game.
You will see some big matches right away like:
- Tottenham vs Manchester United
- Manchester City vs Newcastle
4) Tennis – ATP Cincinnati (August 13th – 20th)
Another battle on the tennis courts is taking place in Cincinnati this week. While Djokovic is the slight favorite, I’m sure Carlos Alcaraz is looking to beat him just like he did in the Wimbledon final earlier this summer.
5) Special Offer of the Week
